The State Library is sponsoring a free leadership event that will take place online in the months of May and June.
This program will assist individual or teams to develop and refine their library’s marketing and advocacy message using strategic storytelling. This three-part, online learning experience with real-time practice, focuses on the development of strategic stories and how to use them to increase the visibility and value of your library. At the end each library will have an effective strategic story of how the library has made a difference. The story can be the central part of library communications in print, in person, and on the Web to decisions-makers as well as the general public. This is an excellent opportunity to inspire your colleagues and to be inspired to create stories to help convey the value of your library.
A library leader may elect to participate as an individual or organize a staff team of up to 5 people (administrators, marketing staff, public service staff, front desk staff, children and youth service staff, staff who hear stories from library customers) to learn together in Leadership Lab sessions.
